March 25, 2020 at 6:20 pm #1038
Workshop on Writing Applications for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) 2020
If you work within the research areas of intermediality, multimodality or related fields and are interested in spending one or two years as a researcher at the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS), you are welcome to submit a proposal for participating in a workshop at Linnaeus University, Sweden. The workshop and ensuing contacts with our Grants and Innovation Office (GIO) should lead to an application for funding from MSCA-IF, allowing you to fulfill a research project and participate in the IMS activities.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (European Fellowships) are open to researchers moving within Europe, as well as those coming in from other parts of the world, as long as one has not lived or worked in Sweden for more than 12 month during the last 3 years (reference date: 9 September 2020). If the application is approved, you must move to Sweden. The applicant should be an experienced researcher, meaning that she or he should hold a doctoral degree. The grant provides an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. In addition, the European Union contributes to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project. The application should be written by the applicant with the aid of the host organization. For more information, see https://ec.europa.eu/research/
Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS) is an interdisciplinary environment that covers the fields of, primarily, comparative literature, media and communication science, linguistics, musicology, film studies and visual studies. Research within IMS spans from theoretical modelling to empirical investigations of areas such as science education, mass media, communication of environmental issues, crime trials and various art forms. IMS cooperates with researchers from all over the world, publishes with leading global publishing houses and journals and arranges international conferences.

Deadline for submitting proposals. Please include a copy of your PhD exam certificate, a brief CV emphasizing research activities and publications (one–two pages). The proposal should further contain a brief description of the research project that you propose to elaborate for an application for MSCA-IF funding (one–two pages). This description must include purpose and aims of the project, significance, brief theoretical and methodological accounts, and a declaration of expected outcomes. Please also indicate who might be your potential IMS collaborator(s). The working language of IMS is English and the application to MSCA-IF and the research publications (if the application should be granted) must be written in English. Please send your proposal to email@example.com.
As soon as we have received all proposals, a selection will be made and you will be notified about the result. The criteria for judging the proposals will be their general quality, their relevance for IMS, and our capacity to offer suitable supervision. If your proposal is accepted, we will send you further details about the workshop and travel arrangements (if applicable). Depending on where you live, we will offer either a trip to Linnaeus University or online participation.
